About Us

W1YK is a college amateur radio club station located at Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Worcester, Massachusetts, USA.

The club was founded in 1909 and was the first college club to ever make a contact over ham radio. Today the club consists of students, faculty and staff of the college and is open to the general public by request. 

Our Station

HF frequencies are covered by our two primary towers mounted on the roof of a building on campus. The 40 foot tower holds our 2 element 40 meter and 4 element 10 meter antennas while the 60 foot tower holds the 20 meter and 15 meter antennas. An inverted V dipole covers 80 and 160 meters.

We also have a smaller 18 foot tower that has 2 meter and 70 centimeter yagis on it that we use for satellite operation. W1YK operates a Yaesu FT-1000MP connected to a Commander HF-2500 2kW linear amp for HF and an IC-910H for satellite.

Our shack

Above, you can see the satellite station antenna tower in the center with our 15/20m and 10/40m off to the left and right of the image, as well as our 80-meter antenna in the lower-right corner.


We operate three repeaters. Two repeaters, under the callsign W1WPI, are located on campus and are a pair of linked VHF and UHF machines. One repeater, off campus to provide greater coverage, is a VHF repeater in mixed mode (analog and P25). For information on our repeaters, click here.


We will gladly send you a QSL card! Self-addressed stamped envelope is appreciated. DX contacts are preferred to QSL through bureau if possible. To ensure a quick response, please send to:
